Hey @Bluey weve been trying to get to Meninndee Lakes since 1974 still haven't, come close and always wanted to go to Camerons Corner since I was a little tagger, won't happen now due to Mrs D's back sadly, so hurry up before you start to fall apart.

Menindee Lakes and MDB as a whole has certainly been controversial over many years. I think theyve experienced MDB water flows into to the system only very recently. I followed the MDB debarcle ... its quite difficult to believe it really

Governments have been having trouble controlling the weather since that bloke Lear tried many moons ago, they still don't get that if it rains it will flow and no amount of money selling water that doesn't exist will solve it, water rights to some corporate body is just stupid just like taxing carbon, just makes someone rich and lots of loosers....... When its all in drought dig some dams, use pipes instead of channels/drains, town needs water downstream pipe the stuff, releasing it to flow 100's of kms down a water course is a brilliant way to waste most of it.............. Farms to update their irrigation to systems with low loss.........

Okay had my rant ...............

Just got a message from my daughter, a senior nurse at a north Brisbane hospital. She had just come home having worked 2 x 12 hour days then 2 x 8 hour days followed by a 12 hour night. Understandably, she did not want to talk as she was falling asleep while texting. She says there is a real sense of fear creeping into the doctors and nurses as most of them have colleagues and friends overseas who are sharing their experience. Worrying times ahead. Stay safe everyone and follow the instructions on isolating and personal spacing.

Well drove to the Post Office to send off something, chose late in day as the pensioner crowd would be gone, so rolled into the butcher's, damn he has some lovely stuff, pity the Pork ribs don't like me anymore but we got plenty of cow and Vegemite & Cheese sausages, truly a great banger...... No shortage of Cow, Pig, Sheepy Baas or Chook here........ Mate said he went early to Woollies for the 0700 pensioner shop, he said the line was miles long which is understandable as 90% of the population here is old farts, we go about 1800 they have flaked out on the couch by then.......................
Stay safe people, might have to plan a big bash by a river or lake when this crap is all over........................

Parking spaces down the street this afternoon reminded me of 50 years ago, could park outside any shop you wanted.

Funnily enough the QLD council elections are still going ahead this weekend they say you can’t stop democracy I say you can’t stop stupid either I mean it’s just councils? Anyway I’m doing what the prim minister said and self isolating for 2 weeks after being interstate earlier this week should sound good in court when I refuse to pay my fine lol

Now more government stupidity.
If you don't like rants, best skip the rest of this posting.

First it was the debacle in Sydney where biosecurity couldn't be bothered to come and test passengers coming off a cruise liner and over a hundred later tested positive to CV. Then they spent more effort in shifting blame and ass covering to give the impression that no one was responsible.
So the solution was to ban any more cruise ships docking until they sort something out. Seems like the episode in Tokyo weeks ago wasn't enough warning to get their asses into gear. Now there are ships at sea that are CV incubators until they can get passengers off and into effective quarantine.

Then the NSW government immediately went over the top handing out $1,000 fines if you break social distancing "guidelines". Yep, when the poo hit the fan about the cruise, shift the goal posts to avoid scrutiny, appear to be tough and proactive, and increase revenue. political win-win.

Now to the point.
Sydney International airport. People lining up shoulder to shoulder either ignoring or unaware of social distancing guidelines. A concerned passenger asked Australian Border Force to take action. The reply was "Not our problem, its a biosecurity problem"
So, NSW police can fine, arrest, and jail anyone for breaking the social distancing law, but when it comes to protecting Australians at key CV entry points like airports and ports, the government agencies are completely and utterly incompetent. lazy, and useless.

Lets have another Royal Commission at the end of this to gather up all the evidence needed to document that the governments did a jolly fine job under the circumstances and that valuable lessons have been learnt that will be documented, and lost by the time they are needed again.

Politicians and bureaucrats: I wouldn't waste my wee on them if they were on fire.

cheers

I saw the writing on the wall weeks back so applied online for a postal vote, turned up in letter box, ticked boxes and posted it back yesterday, easy peasy will do it more often as I hate going to polling booths, detest lining up especially for pollies............... be an idiot to line up nowadays, like those folk at the Dole Office, just BS.

So since you would have been in SA anyway @DRW what would have been your excuse, I was thinking if things had gone as planned I wouldn't have even knew about it as I would have been interstate for a month, only clicked we were having one here on the 14th of March as the close date for postal application was the 16th.

Hey @mikerezny was all going well till you said have a Royal Commission, just another waste of money on BS talk and a waste of paper on a report that will take months and months, in the end buggerall will be done... The idiots won't listen, won't learn or change the way they do things..............

Sorry, I must have not put enough tongue in cheek when writing my comment about Royal Commissions. I completely agree with you.

Further update on the cruise ship debacle. Passengers from that ship who ended up in SA now account for 50% of the known positive tests in that state.
